About the employer

Balloon Letting Co are a Bristol based and proudly independent residential lettings and management company in the heart of Bristol. With over a decade of experience in the Bristol market, we saw an opportunity and a need for vast improvements in the lettings industry and strive to set a higher standard for both landlords and tenants. We offer services across all aspects of residential lettings, from rent collection to full property management. Whether your letting a apartment in central Bristol, a room in a house share or a student property, we have expertise across each area and that along with our core focus of offering the finest level of service, has meant we’re growing rapidly. There are some agents out there who will go above and beyond for their landlords, but we recognise that there are two important parties in successfully letting a property, a landlord and a tenant. We’ve been tenants ourselves and to put it mildly it’s easy to feel disposable in a Bristol lettings market that is extremely buoyant.
